Interferon-γ influences immunity elicited by vaccines against very virulent Marek's disease virus.

Abstract

Vaccination of chickens with herpesvirus of turkey (HVT) confers only partial protection against challenge with a very virulent Marek's disease virus (MDV). Here, we evaluated the ability of recombinant chicken interferon-gamma (rChIFN-γ) to enhance protective efficacy of HVT against the very virulent MDV strain, RB1B. The bioactivity of IFN-γ expressed by… (More)
